Enter the payroll classification and the class rate into the EMR Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the EMR Rate.

## EMR Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the EMR Rate.

EMR = PC /100 / CR
• Where EMR is the EMR Rate
• PC is the payroll classification
• CR is the class rate

To calculate an experience modification rate, divide the payroll classification by 100, then multiply by the class rate.

## How to Calculate EMR Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate EMR Rate.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the payroll classification.
• The payroll classification is given as: 500.
2. Next, determine the class rate.
• The class rate is provided as: .45.
3. Finally, calculate the EMR Rate using the equation above:

EMR = PC /100 / CR

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

EMR = 500 /100 / .45 = 11.11

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

payroll classification = 600

class rate = .75
